SURAJ SHARMA, 29
Actor (Life of Pi and Phillauri)
Fear of the unknown keeps us in formulas but progress and growth is only found in the unknown. In my case, I merely found myself acting in a foreign land before I worked in India. It was not a conscious decision that I had the luxury to make. As an actor, I have to try and learn from all the worlds and schools of this art form. Some things can only be learnt in Indian cinema just as some only in Hollywood. It would be a great personal success for me if I could access both.
Freedom to me is The ability to think, speak and act freely without taking away the ability of another individual to do the same.
Three things that come to my mind when we talk about the 70th year of Independence is the importance of the ingenuity of youth, the synthesis of tradition and modernity and being open-minded and self-critical in order to communicate effectively.
In a world of complete freedom. I do believe one would start out by establishing some basic rules.
